Launched in late 2013, WGSN Instock gathers millions of eCommerce data points, daily - and aggregates them to give clients high level insights across the fashion retail market, enabling them to make better informed buying & design decisions.
My background prior to Digital Design, was in Fashion Buying - so I was bought into this project as both a Designer and 'UX partner' to work alongside the UX Manager to define user requirements and workflows. This project was Agile based, so we worked in strictly defined sprints with the newly assembled Development team to ensure that delivery was timely. This was WGSN's first 'big data' product release, so was a major milestone in WGSN's product suite.
This product was named a 'Silver Winner' in Best New Product of the Year (Enterprise) in Best in Biz Awards 2014, and went on to win 'Silver' in Fashionbiz's annual product awards and was also shortlisted for Best Tech Start-up 2015 by Drapers Records.
